Livø Island, Denmark

A few weekends ago we visited one of the most delightful places we've seen in Denmark.  A little island called Livø where no cars or dogs are allowed and only nine people reside year round, four of whom are school children.  We took a passenger ferry over (just people on foot and bike, no cars) and spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the island's beauty.  Livø is here, only 50 or so kilometers from our house in Hobro:

All the hike markers are engraved stones

We found two lookout towers on opposite ends of the island
